Derivatives – Markets
Derivatives may seem like complex, modern, instruments, but they have been around since ancient times. However, in recent decades, derivatives markets have expanded dramatically in terms of both scope and scale.
This course describes derivatives markets today, both OTC and exchange-traded – and how the lines between these have become blurred by regulations adopted following the global financial crisis.
